If you have some leftover cooked meat from yesterday, then using it in a creamy pasta is a great way of making it go further, and getting a delicious meal in the process. Here we have used some leftover New York strip steak that was cooked medium rare. It is sliced thinly and combined in a pasta dish with broccoli, swiss chard and a sauce with blue cheese and sour cream. It's quick, simple and utterly delicious.

4-6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz of pasta
  • ½ – 1 lb of cooked meat (steak would be ideal, however chicken or pork would do too)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 bunch of swiss chard
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • About 1 cup of crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 container of full fat sour cream
  • salt and pepper

Method:

Heat the water up for the pasta. Cut the broccoli in pieces and chop up the swiss chard. Slice the meat very thinly. Cook the pasta. In a pot, melt the butter and saute the garlic for a minute. Add the broccoli, the swiss chard, the blue cheese and the sour cream. Once the sauce has come together, add the meat and let come to a simmer. Taste with salt and pepper. Drain the pasta when it's ready and add that to the pot with the sauce. Serve immediately.
